1.9-mile Legacy Trail extension to Scott County near completion

A crew with ATS Construction worked on paving a 1.5-mile extension of the Legacy Trail extension around the Kentucky Horse Park. A crew with ATS Construction was putting down the final coat of asphalt on the 10-foot-wide, 7,900-foot-long extension, which will run from the main entrance of the Horse Park to the Scott County line along Iron Works Pike and Interstate 75. Eventually the trail will extend into Scott County.

Construction crews are paving a 1.9-mile section of the Legacy Trail, which stretches from the Kentucky Horse Park to the Scott County line.

Work on the new section of the trail began in November and had been expected to be completed by mid-August, but utility problems have caused delays, said Natasha Lacy, spokeswoman for District 7 of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. The trail is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Construction began at the Scott County line and is approaching the existing trail, which ends at the Horse Park.

When connected, the Legacy Trail will be nearly 12 miles long.

An 8.5-mile portion of the trail, from North Loudon Avenue to the Horse Park, opened in September 2010.
